It's Monday Again :(
Morning Mates, from a melting Pictou County.
Temperatures are so mild it feels like spring, but we know is after all, only mid-January!
Yesterday the sun made an appearanace for a few hours, so we took the dogs out for a walk on a nearby walking trail on the waterfront.
Griffin went absolutely ballistic with excitement, all the smells! He got very wet and dirty but had a great time!


Back to work at the new school today, wonder what surprises they'll throw at me this week?

Hi Kids,
Typing from the semi tropical east coast! Will be close to 60 today! I just heard that Mt, Washington NH, the highest peak on the east coast, recorded their highest January temperature ever with 50 degrees! Kuki, must have icicles hanging from his nose, like I saw on the trees in Scottsdale. Oy!

The beautifulgift I got from my new jewelry designer friend, is a beautiful bracelet that she designed in pink,for me, for breast cancer, with a ruby, as that's my birthstone. She does beautiful work,and, I wll be a good customer;)

I made today's supper, yesterday,so I am as free a bird today..what to do, what to

Make it a good one.

Sunny but cool morning here after the past few days being in the high 60's. Cool front is moving through with a possibilty of sleet tomorrow night. Our trip to Texas has be delayed :( for a week or so. Will shorten our time there but we are hoping to leave in about 10 days if nothing else comes up.
Since we were home we tackled a few home improvement jobs. Started last Monday morning removing all the wall paper from the kitchen. D/H then painted the walls & ceiling for me. It was then my job to put up the new splash guard around the stove & sink. Looks pretty darn good now! I cleaned out all the cabinets and pitched lots of odds & ends that were no longer in use. Then on Thursday, my son-in-law came over with his truck so we could go to our local Lowes for 2 new garage doors. By 5 pm we had 2 new doors with the garage door openers working! It is so nice to have things back in good working order. I have told my sister she is not allowed to park anywhere near the doors when she comes as she hit one of them a couple of years ago while attempting to back up. Got a good laugh out of her on that and she promised not to go near them.
Today I will be doing mostly office work. After pretty much taking last week off I really need to get some quotes out to clients today.
Everyone have a great day.

Good morning everyone.

Sue: It sounds like you are the Home Improvement Queen. It is nice to get things updated and a fresh look to them.

I just hugged the grandkids and sent them off, with Betty, to school. It was a fun week and I'll miss them. But we'll see them again on Wednesday night for my granddaughter's concert. Based on my granddaughter's musical abilities it should be an interesting experience.

It is a cold one outside with temps around -8F. We don't have too much to do today other than some light house cleaning and running clothes to the cleaners. We will start the packing process tomorrow or Wednesday. I told Betty that we will do these cruises with one suitcase and a carry-on. No formal wear is needed so that will cut down. I have also limited Betty to three pairs of "dress shoes". We'll see if she actually pays any attention. ;)

I hope everyone has a great day and wonderful week.

Take care,

Have a nice day!
